Annie Hardy’s work is a combination of observation and recollection. These processes are transcribed as a stream of consciousness and coalesce into ‘abstract memory maps’ chronicled in numerous art journals.
These retrospective diaries generate process led drawings, paintings and sculptures that develope in intuitive and spontaneous ways. Through a practice of addition, subtraction, and multiple layers of mark making mysterious landscapes emerge of memory accumulating.
Time spent living abroad, in Australia and Africa, is reflected in a rich colour palette. The resulting images and sculptures are both curious and familiar, provoking a visual sensation that is often beyond words and rational thought.
